Aya Asali Website v2 2019.pngHello! My name is Aya Asali and I've just graduated with a BSc in Politics and Economics after three amazing years at Surrey. I'm currently completing an MSc in Management, also at Surrey, hoping to improve the circumstances I witnessed and experienced throughout my degree. I am Palestinian-Jordanian, yet I relate to any and all cultures, and have a passion for theatre, dance, Taekwondo, and of course, politics. Entering university at 17 as an international student meant that I needed exceptionally strong communication to know my way around university, which was at times lacking. This year, I'd like to focus mainly on improving the University's communication, as well as employability and feedback from lecturers. I hope for nobody to feel lost or unaware on my watch! 

I'm really looking forward to working with the union, and representing your voice. I'd love for you to contact me with ideas if you spot me around campus, or via email, so we can work together to make them happen.

My Manifesto


Increase Employability

Initiating a graduate job guidance program, aside from placement training, dedicated to preparing final years and international students for the workplace.

Enhance University-wide Communication

  1. Encouraging Course Reps to engage with their course mates by offering recommendations from the Union

  2. Improving communication with first years about schemes the University offers

  3. Spreading awareness about the assistance that Student Services can provide

Fight for Feedback

Ensuring lecturers provide enough feedback for all types of assessments by adding the following segment to Surrey Self Service:

  • Do you know why you received this mark? Yes/no

  • Was the feedback adequate? Yes/no
